I own the ABI tac welder II for about a year now. Initially, it was
a frustrating machine, but like all new toys, it takes practice and
a willingness to learn its abilities and limitations.
Practise on scrap parts is essential, or you will ruin pieces of
jewelry. Learning to figure out voltage settings for the ‘tack’
window’ and not to blow the piece away varies from piece to piece.
From what I understand, Steece Hermannson has been working on a
manual for the company to provide a more in depth instruction book,
and I am still waiting for it; but by and large experimentation is
theonly way I know.
